The life and times of an up and coming vegetable patch. A blog to record my first attempts at vegetable gardening.

My raspberry and strawberry plants arrived yesterday! I ordered them from Dobies of Devon a couple of weeks ago and they arrived safely as bare rooted plants - Joan J raspberries (an Autumn fruiting variety) and Royal Sovereign strawberries. The planting instructions are very comprehensive (a complete booklet!) and suggest waiting until the ground is not waterlogged. Given the weather over the last week and the forecast for the week to come, I decided to bite the bullet and plant them anyway - fingers crossed.
